You should love what you do

Assalamualaikum wbt..

 This morning daycare drop off got me thinking pulling my scarf out.

For one, the teacher is really frustrating me and she is really not making this wonderful daycare pleasant for me in the mornings. 

1) She questioned (a month ago) why Aulia' only naps 1.5 to 2 hours? She complained to me that she is the first to wake up and doesn't get back to sleep and ends up waking up other kids (A: not my problem, she naps great at home and B: how LONG you want her to nap?)

2) This morning she had the nerve to tell me that I need to let the daycare know when Aulia' is sick and what she has. (A: I called the daycare the morning I kept fer from daycare and B: The next day when I brought her in I told the teacher that she was sick with HFMD, but not contagious.). She then (and I quote) said "This is the first I have heard about HFMD).. FOR REAL??? omg. You work in a daycare and you have NO information about HFMD?

Needless to say, we will be looking into a new daycare, there is actually a daycare closer to our home but the same owner! Worst case, I'll send my child to my sister's.

Which gets me to the title of this post..I truly don't think she (the daycare teacher) loves what she does. I see she get frustrated with crying babies sometimes. I think she gets off at down talking to me and just isn't happy-go-lucky like the other teachers at the previous daycare. If you don't like what you do..get a new job!

Until we find a new daycare, I need to learn to speak my mind and put this teacher in her place, With the hfmd situation I was little more stern about standing my ground. But I do wish I would have questioned her lack of knowledge. 

I personally need to love what I do, also. I need to stand my ground as a Mom. I hate leaving a situation and feeling like I should have said more. Then I end up calling my husband and venting it all out for him. (Love you B!)

Here's to speaking our minds, doing everything possible for our kids and leaving any given situation with a smile on our face, be patient and knowing that we stood up for ourselves!

Saving the best for the last-Me!

Assalamualaikum w.b.t..
B's nature of work leaves me with no choice but to be independent. His work schedule knows no weekends and public holiday. But a kaki jalan I am by nature and nurture,what if it's only me and Aulia'? bring it on! Nak keluar jugak! I thought  it was impossible at first but naaa, practice makes perfect, I am so used to it already, you'll be surprised of what I can do with only one hand. Haha The skills develop naturally. From folding stroller and do groceries shopping while pushing the cart and her stroller? I have done all that. But there are time I do need hands from strangers, and kudos to Malaysians, they're helpful. And I think this is the perfect bonding time because Aulia' is with her baby sitter during the weekdays.


So there are times, I'd love to doll up, but now I have a plus one! How? I doll her up as well! luckily she's a daughter, dear God thanks for being so understanding! I am grateful! Tutu you say?! Of course! and…

DIY Dulang Hantaran Fresh Flowers

Assalamualaikum wbt..

Last week was my BIL E-day. So I was assigned by my MIL to do the 'Dulang Hantaran' and it decorations including all the goodies inside the dulang.. since this is only the engagement event, not so much personal items to be included in the dulang except for the rings.. both for merisik and engagement..
Since last time during my Nikah day, I did the DIY dulang hantaran using the artificial flowers and this time around I was thinking to do it with the fresh flowers. I purposely wanted it that way just because I can save a lot of time (since I am way too busy with my PhD study and I have to travel to and fro KL-JB) and at the same time we can avoid the hustle of keeping the dulang covered with dust in the store room. Lol..talking about experience huh!
And most importantly.. we can save a lot of money.. Lemme show you the trick..

Sending off dulang for fresh flower decorations can cost you up to RM75 to RM150 per tray excluding the items inside the dulang. Mi…

Girls trip to Sabah

Memorial weekend after I had my HSG test, Mary, Kak Ju, Nini and I got to fly down to KK to spend three blissful days hanging out with our dear friend from uni, Jessica. The five of us studied together in UPM SIX years ago so we decided a reunion was a great excuse for me to ditch the husband and my little girl and have some serious girl-time in Sabah. Lucky for us Jess is an amazing host and planned everything out perfectly.

A few of the highlights were our stay at J Residence, the upside-down house in Tamparuli, Kundasang wet market, Desa Cattle Farm Kundasang, Luanti River Kelah fish spa and Sabah tea farm.

It was so refreshing to be with old friends and enjoy my first trip to north Borneo... and I can officially declare that I have covered most of the states in Malaysia (haven't cover Labuan yet!). yipsss!

My Instagram update for this photo: Waking up to this! -Our stay at J Residence Kundasang, the view is so breathtaking :)
Enjoying my morning view:)
